This book examines the health spending crisis and calls for a broad agenda of experimentation and reform to slow health care spending growth. Alice M. Rivlin of Brookings and Joseph R. Antos of the American Enterprise Institute, editors of the volume, offer a comprehensive menu of specific reforms, many of which can and should be pursued simultaneously. Given the size and impact of federal health programs, well-designed reforms of these programs can serve as a catalyst for improvements of the whole health system.
This book is the third in the Restoring Fiscal Sanity series from the Budgeting for National Priorities project.
